That said, I liked the somewhat even handed approach it took about fracking as two sales people from a natural gas company descended on a small town trying to buy rights to the gas. At times I felt the movie was going to go too far to the environmental left but then it centered a bit. But again the movie is really not about that issue.
I liked the writing and acting in this movie - thought Damon and John Krasinski were good in both the writing and acting roles. Also liked Rosemarie DeWitt in the role of a romantic interest and 88 year old Hal Holbrook as a voice of reason.
As you can tell, I liked the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.
